My bad if this has been posted, but here....

When homicide detectives gathered early Saturday on a blighted Gentilly street and tended to the city's latest victim, they found a familiar face.
View full sizeGarelle Smith
There in the 3500 block of Hamburg Street lay Garelle Smith, 29, dead of gunshot wounds to his head and chest.
During the past decade, Smith bedeviled the NOPD like perhaps no other accused criminal. Time and again, prosecutors and police tied him to violent crimes, locked him up and prepared a case, only for it to fall apart.
Police alleged in 2003 he was paid $10,000 to fatally shoot renowned local rapper Soulja Slim, born James Tapp. Witnesses wouldn't come forward, and the case was dropped.
That same year, cops claimed Smith killed Spencer Smith Jr. Again, witnesses wouldn't come forward, and the case was dropped.
In 2007, Smith was jailed in the killing of 24-year-old Mandell Duplessis. Smith was also jailed that year in the killing of Terry Brock. Again, no witnesses, no case.
There would be other arrests: guns, drugs, trespassing. They would have similar fates.
Smith, meanwhile, became a poster boy for the fecklessness of the city's criminal justice system. He garnered notoriety in national news outlets.
In court, he was soft-spoken but assured, carrying himself with ease even as he faced a potential lifetime behind bars. His orange prison garb was almost always oversized; at 5 feet, 6 inches and 155 pounds, he was small in stature, but his legend outsized.
On the streets, he was whispered about in almost mythic tones. Some called him a hit man, an enforcer, a one-of-a-kind criminal who never left his neighborhood.
And it was there, a block from where he used to live, that he died from a gunshot.
The New Orleans Police Department's news release on the murder is short and blunt: Officers received a call of a man shot, and upon their arrival, found the victim suffering from several gunshot wounds. The release makes no mention of the story behind Smith, or of the many times police played the cat-and-mouse game and lost.
NOPD officials declined to comment about the death of the longtime suspect Monday. The department has released no details on a possible motive or suspect in Smith's killing.
Smith had been in and out of jail since at least 1998, though he garnered few convictions as an adult. One of the rare cases that didn't evaporate was a 1998 conviction for attempted possession of a firearm while in possession of narcotics.
A judge sentenced him to five years in prison, but then allowed Smith to complete a GED and a local boot-camp program while on probation.
He had four separate cases hanging over his head when he died. His most recent arrest was June 26, when police allegedly caught him with a gun and a bag of marijuana.
He was scheduled to appear in court later this week for arraignment. If history is any guide, Smith probably would have pleaded not guilty.

    Nah, they caught this dude right after the murder and said he was paid 10G's along w/ another dude to do Slim in now the other dude (if Im not mistaken) skipped to ATL then back to HTown and them HTown niggas wasn't havin it..... He got his issue there (this is all from what I'm hearing from N.O. niggas now. But I think the sender of the hit is still out there.






    And something else funny about this nigga Garelle Smith is that he supposedly killed another nigga the same way he did Slim in. He supposedly killed a nigga when he was coming out of a FEMA trailer to smoke a cig or run a quick errand. That case got dropped too though. And I seen on the news that the dude coming out the FEMA trailers tomb is like next to Slim's toomb. You know thats how they bury them folks in the Nola cause of the low sea level or something like that...

    Your guess is good as mine brah. Doubt if it was P or Baby though, and I ain't saying it aint them, but the hearts of them N.O. niggas is just wicked!! Every nigga wanna tier rep or be the boss. And you may have heard of this young lady named Magnolia Shorty. She was supposedly killed cause she was in the wrong place at the wrong time and was riding w/ the niggas who was beefin w/ the niggas that wasted Slim. She got hit like 20Xs and they still have yet to find her killer. They both was out the Nolia. May be Garelle Smith related, may not be, I don't know....

    hell naw Baby wouldnt have any reason to kill Soulja Slim, they never had beef

    even tho Slim was dissing P, I still couldnt see P doing it. Gotta be some ol local beef that happen ( I forgot who that click was tha I heard a lil beef with Slim, I think they from uptown. Its a street gang, I think they are from Melph projects in Nw Orleans)

    The Realist.........Thats all i can say.....Slim got killed in my ward, around my way......thats the 7th ward....do ya research.....yall never hear bout the 7th ward....
    but believe me....when i say that 7th is probably the hardest place in the N.O....not to take nothin from other wards.....but real talk the 7th ward is a fuckin killin field...
    if yall lil niggas knew the shit i knew.....or even seen half the shit i seen, yall would love to be rappers or make lil doc's.....but this shit is real life for some of us...
    and Garelle is a 7th ward nigga..........if yall ever notice my sig on the bottom......its Slim....and its short and sweet....."I dont give a fuck im over due-No excuses for none of the shit Soulja do".... again i close with "The Realist"......that nigga was and still is the Realist Rapper from N.O...

    R.I.P. to both of those brothers........and i was telling niggas in all kinds of threads how niggas in the N.O. is hitmen.......and Master P and Baby didnt have nothing to do with this..
    real niggas on the streets wouldnt even take the money from P.....when P wanted to get Slim killed.......put 2 and 2 together.....after word got out P, probably wanted Slim killed...
    the whole Miller family wasnt allowed to step foot in New Orleans......even Romeo wouldve got his crack....everybody kin to P.....so insert C Miller......if niggas didnt know....C Murder the nigga who told the streets P wanted Slim dead......so C Murder attached his self to Slim......in hopes that P realize if u sent the hit.....i maybe with him, thats something for P to thank about.......but Slim had so much respect on the street......that real niggas wouldnt accept the money from P, and word got out nigga told P, if u want Slim dead he gotta do it his self........P just let go......Slim whipped the fuck outta Silk....cuz he couldnt close to P, and C-Murder gave him the greenlight to put them hands on Silk......thats why shit is 7th ward Slim.......i feel like Soulja Slim of the 7th ward.......thats why i fall back, cuz some of these posters just dont know.....they talk all crazy behind keyboard and screen...but dog this is really my life..........like real life shit for me........from time to time i post....but this All hip Hop shit is corny to tell u the truth.....yall niggas be gettin glimpse into real street life shit, and yall criticize and cast judgement, from a million miles from the hood, yall dont understand how Rick Ross can be a C.O. and still get love from the streets... yall have no idea how the streets work......yall gettin info from the Music, dog im in the trenches.....and i do it for the real niggas when i post on this board....
    i be in the streets talkin about yall niggas on the IC.......and i think thats where u guys belong on the IC.....cuz i highly doubt 95% of this board will survive in the jungles of New Orleans......just look at our rappers and look at they background..........thats why i tell niggas Lil Wayne could never be a studio gangsta or fake gang banger......this nigga was raised by the Realist......he was under Slim wing when he damn near still a toddler.....this nigga Wayne was raised by the upper echolon of real niggas from New Orleans.....
    i mean this nigga was born and bred by killers.......thats why sometimes he have to tone it down.......like when he said he would kill your babies i believe that nigga......
    thats how niggas in New Orleans get down......and if a nigga coming to get u, he comin to get you.......thats why Garelle had so many bodies........cuz he knew in his heart he did the wrong thing......but for the money i cant knock him.........and the niggas who put the hit out on Slim......have status to get niggas like Baby, Master P, Lil Wayne any big name nigga from New Orleans yall ever heard of..........they have the status to greenlight any nigga and he good as dead.....we call them Contracts....... if a nigga gotta a contract on ya head......if your dont kill him, u dont get paid, and u get killed if he survived.......niggas down here be playing with big guns dog.......Chopper City for real...... niggas would hit ya ass about 50-60 times dog........Slim had it coming he knew he had it coming.......

    Sidenote- Its no secret the N.O.P.D.........killed Garelle......and word on the streets they have 1 more dude left connected to killin Slim......and he pretty much a walkin target.....
    u know how the streets talk........"oh thats the dude who had something to do with Slim gettin killed"........any random person from New Orleans woll become a trigga man......all real niggas took a oathe to the streets.......and every nigga who had something to do with Slim gettin killed die.........that word on the Slim head.........Big Dog the City riding for you......we bangin out for you........so when yall see niggas from New Orleans.....yall see Soulja Slim.......every nigga in the street took a vow, to recreate Slim spirit and his spirit will never die.........since his death, niggas on the streets elevated they street-mentality...... face tattoos like crazy......like when Slim died the whole city died......and we came back as vicious animals.........we Louisi-Animalz......come play around in this jungle and never leave.......the Realist.......spoken from a real nigga....... a type nigga that shouldnt be posting on All Hip Hop.......but hey until yall come to the killin fields of the 7th ward.....yall may think im bullshittin and pullin ya leg.......but New Orleans was the Murder Cap....
    for 20 straights..........i said 2 decades straight......and 10 of those years we was the Murder Cap of the World........ yall heard that the M'F Murder Cap of the World.....
    its nothing to brag about..........its a token of appreciation for life.......its a swag some will have.....just to survive in that place is a fuckin miracle.......so i keep a 40 with a dick on it.......we call extended clips dicks........so yea i keep a 40 with a stupid dick hangin out the bottom, i gotta live and the police are now understanding......that man these streets so fucked up, only stupid people dont carry guns........if u not strapped u tryna commit suicide on these streets......having a gun with more then 20 shots is a must......

    Alright Ima GA nigga and never step foot in the NO or BR area, but I been on Slim ever since I heard of the nigga and I mean that!! I actually remember liking the nigga music on NL, nigga released that "Years Later" album and I thought it sucked, but when that nigga revamped w/ the "Years Later Few Months After", I seen he still had it. I was in FYE checking out his music, but I couldn't buy it cause I was broke as hell in college. Remembered hearing bout the shooting and how he passed too mane. Really messed me up cause I was pushing for the nigga to blow like P, Baby, or 50, but getting wasted instead. So I know cause I been done met the nigga mama and got pics and autographs w/ her when she was in GA and spoke to niggas who knew Slim. I been on the nigga since Down South Hustlers w/ P and right then and there seen the nigga was talented as hell!! I'm certified when knowing bout that NO life cause its so real and spill into the music. I even knew bout the NO scene before P blew up w/ it cause Mystikal had that "Mind of Mystikal" thang and it was on from then on.....



    So dude is a serial killer and he just got bopped now.How come none of slims people got to him.



    Alright check. This gonna image what 7th Ward and Big Head was saying. Gonna sound crazy as hell, but I'll give you the real and this was also noted in the "Murderdog" magazine w/ Slim's momma "Miss Linda Tapp". Slim had some sell out friends alright. You said it yourself "how come none of Slims ppl got to him". The real trill friends that he may have was Geezy, and C which I know of. But look look look, the day he got murked, his own niggas (CTC members) was stealing stuff from him. I know they took his laptop (and there is another story behind this), his chain, clothes, and more stuff of his. He passed away right, well his mama knew it wasn't safe to stay in that house in the Gentilly area so she went I think to her sisters house of course. She came back and someone broke in the house and stole a suit Slim had laid out for a concert, I think in Monroe, LA or something. And while he was layin dead on the ground only a few minutes after being shot to death, one of them niggas managed to lift the chain off him. THATS WHAT YOU CALL CUTTHROAT!! This has all been documented too mane. But niggas got the chain and clothes back. Now this laptop, which is had the album Big Head (post #17) was talking bout on it came up missing too. This has that Geezy and Slim album on it called "Uptown Souljas", or "Never Seen It Comin" on it. Niggas done went back in that crib and stole the laptop only to get that album (which is not supposed to be leaked by the way) and sold it on the streets. Slim had a cousin who also rapped named 12 O Klock (excuse if mispelled) who RIP too cause he was shot to death. And this is some of the reasons why 12 fell out with the fake CTC (Cutthroat Commity) members. Because of the stealing..... 12 and another member named Tre-Nitty( who was on Slim's first album on a NL song called "Get High With Me" and a random vid of C on BET "How Im Living") fell out w/ them lil niggas and claim that they never even knew Slim for more than 2 months prior to his passing. And these are not some random niggas who was walking up the street, and seen Slim laying there to steal his stuff and raid his crib out of valuables either. These were his close "friends". Niggas who he opened up his home to and gave names to. Niggas who he put on his label... Went cutthroat on the man at his time of death..... This the song Big Head was talking bout and these niggas (except BG) were the ones accused of stealing stuff from Slim when he died and this caused the beef w/ Slims cousin 12. All that rapping and friend crap went right out the window mane..... Shocked me too at the fakery.....




    Sidenote- Its no secret the N.O.P.D.........killed Garelle......and word on the streets they have 1 more dude left connected to killin Slim......and he pretty much a walkin target.....
    u know how the streets talk........"oh thats the dude who had something to do with Slim gettin killed"........any random person from New Orleans woll become a trigga man......all real niggas took a oathe to the streets.......and every nigga who had something to do with Slim gettin killed die.........that word on the Slim head.........Big Dog the City riding for you......we bangin out for you........so when yall see niggas from New Orleans.....yall see Soulja Slim.......every nigga in the street took a vow, to recreate Slim spirit and his spirit will never die.........since his death, niggas on the streets elevated they street-mentality...... face tattoos like crazy......like when Slim died the whole city died......and we came back as vicious animals.........we Louisi-Animalz......come play around in this jungle and never leave.......the Realist.......spoken from a real nigga....... a type nigga that shouldnt be posting on All Hip Hop.......but hey until yall come to the killin fields of the 7th ward.....yall may think im bullshittin and pullin ya leg.......but New Orleans was the Murder Cap....

    I wouldn't be surprised if them NOPD niggas were the ones who had something to do w/ Slim's death. Whole city cutthroat!! How in the hell this nigga dodge murder charge after murder charge after murder charge, then only manage to dodge drug charge, gun charges, and more charges????!!! That's police work bruh!!! It wouldn't surprise me the least if they had something to do w/ setting Slim up. Can't trust them laws either, but nigga can't prove it though. I wish my luck w/ the laws was like that mane lol... Can't get a nigga that killed a rapper, but they sho'll can lock up rappers can't they like C and Mac..... Niggas C, Mac, and Turk done caught the strong crooked arm of the laws.. I SMH @ these niggas who quick to say someone guilty just because they seen the man mugshot on tv. A bunch of fags is what they is....

    Funny thing is I been seeing niggas who supposed to be in tha A town w/ them Slim tats too!! "Souljasign" SMH.... Niggas down here think just cause he gone, they can jock the man style... SMH.. There is more to the story w/ C, P, and this hit thing. I don't know who sent it, but I doubt if it was P though. Aint 100 w/ that though. It could be any man w/ a wicked heart. So I can't call it. I'm talking bout I visit the A just for a day, go in these gas stations and see niggas in the A w/ Souljasigns on they faces... Fake niggas mane. Only 1 nigga deserve tha respect for that and if he ain't grant it to you, then leave it alone!!
